Our annual Mill-Luck Salmon Celebration is just weeks away (September 4-5) and we wanted to spotlight our headlining performer: Grammy Award and 12-time Native American Music Award winning artist, Joanne Shenandoah.
Shenandoah is a Wolf Clan member of the Iroquois Confederacy-Oneida Nation and has numerous recordings and her music is on over 40 compilations.
Her original compositions, combined with a striking voice enable her to embellish the ancient songs of the Iroquois using a blend of traditional and contemporary instrumentation.
Ms. Shenandoah’s music reflects the indigenous philosophy and culture, which continues to have a profound effect on the world today. From traditional chants to contemporary ballads about Native ways, her music has been described as an emotional experience, a “Native American Trance”.
Tickets for Ms. Shenandoah’s Saturday night concert are now on sale at Ko-Kwel Gifts inside The Mill Casino • Hotel. You can call 800.953.4800 for ticket info and reservations.
Tickets for the concert are $18 per person with an $8 discount for Millionaire$ Club members. Members of our popular Millionaire$ Club can also receive discounted tickets to the popular Salmon Bake dinner.
About the The Mill-Luck Salmon Celebration:
Linked to the traditional observance marking the return of the salmon, The Mill-Luck Salmon Celebration began as a means of sharing the heritage, culture and traditions of the Coquille Indian Tribe and other Pacific Northwest Tribes with residents and visitors to Oregon’s Bay Area. Now in its seventh year, the event attracts Native American artisans and musicians from throughout the Western United States and Canada.
